The Crucified Rabbi - A Review

About once a year I get motivated to post a book review. I should do it more often. Today I wish to recommend Taylor Marshall's new book, The Crucified Rabbi which became available two weeks ago.

The author was formerly the Assistant Director of the Catholic Information Center in Washington, D.C. and currently a Ph.D. student in Philosophy at the University of Dallas focusing on the Natural Law theory of Saint Thomas Aquinas.

The book is about the Jewish roots of Catholic Christianity and meets that description with outstanding clarity. Just this past Saturday in a discussion about the coming changes in text used in the Latin Rite Mass a question was raised about Jesus "descending into hell" phrase in the Apostles Creed. I was happy to refer the group to Taylor's discussion of this very subject.

Click here to to order the book. It appears to be only available in paperback. Much of his work at Catholic Information Center is available on Podcasts at their web site.
